Cathedral Church of the Redemption

"Beautiful, Serene and Calm"

This Church, also known as Viceroy's Church earlier, is one of the most beautiful and magnificent churches in India. The church is located east of Parliament House and Rashtrapati Bhavan which was used by then British Viceroy.

The Church's centralized plan blends neatly with Sir Edwin Lutyens city plan. With Viceroy Lord Irwin's keen support, the Church, built on Henry Alexander Medd's (1892-1977) design, was opened for public worship on Sunday, 18 January 1931. H.A.N. Medd's design was inspired by the Palladio Church of Il Redentore in Venice as well as Lutyens Hampstead church.

The cathedral was built in such a manner that even in the extreme summers it remains cool, awesome, relaxing and serene. The church has beautifully curved high arches and delicate domes, which won the heart of the then Viceroy Lord Irwin. Irwin gifted an organ and a silver Cross to the Church. The Church has been said to resemble the shape of a birthday cake with a candle placed on top.

The Church, a witness to nearly eight decades of history, is a sanctuary of quiet meditation, prayer and generous giving. It is home to a vibrant parish and a wonderful tribute to Indian Christian life.
